Your Hair Will Thank You
Frequently Asked Questions
Although braids can last anywhere between two to eight weeks depending on which kind you go for and how you wear them, you should be prepared to grease your scalp regularly especially If you go swimming (or happen to sweat a lot), your scalp will require some TLC.
We recommend keeping your braids in for 3-4 weeks and if you want them to last this long, you have to really take good care of them to avoid frizz and breakage. In order for braids to last long you’ll need to take care of them by rehydrating your hair daily with the Hair Growth Crème which contains a variety of different essentials oils that are good for your hair & scalp but does not usually work very well on their own so My Grip Game created the perfect blend of essential oils to deliver the best hair growth & hair care results. And we usually recommend you apply the Hair Growth Crème every 3 days or every other day if you’re an athlete but avoid getting your hair wet with water especially if your hair texture is a 4c hair texture. Some hair textures such as 4c hair texture will start to frizz or tangle when water is applied, so if you’re doing sports or going to the gym and you sweat excessively, I recommend you cover hair with a dome or a Durag to help soak up the sweat so that your braids don’t frizz out too much.
Will my hair grow faster if I leave my braids in for a long time say 3-6 months?
One of the reasons we put our hair into protective styles such as box braids twists and cornrows install is to give our strands a break and allow hair to retain length. However, leaving in a protective style, like box braids, twists, and cornrows for too long will undo all of the protection and make your hair prone to breakage. Unfortunately keeping your cornrows in for longer than about 6 weeks won’t result in any additional growth. Hair will continue to become tangled and could even begin to turn into dreadlocks if you’re not careful.
While hair type charts vary in what hair qualities they feature, one factor they always include is texture. Hair texture generally refers to the natural shape or pattern of your hair strands. If you’re unsure about which category you fall into, leave your hair free of products and let it air dry the next time you wash it. If it dries straight without a bend or curl, then you have straight hair (or type 1 hair as it is commonly referred to). If it dries with a slight curve or “S” shape, then it’s considered wavy hair (type 2). If your hair dries with a defined curl or loop pattern, you have one of two curl types. Type 3 curly hair has springy ringlets or corkscrew curl patterns but is not as dense as coily hair. Coily hair texture is classified in the type 4 category and is often called a natural hair type. It’s characterized by dense spirals, zig-zag patterns, and shrinkage that occur when its tight coils go from wet to dry. This hair type is more fragile and prone to breakage than others, requiring a more specialized hair care routine.
The answer is that different 4c hair textures not only have a different level of shrinkage but each 4c hair texture also has a porosity level. You may have heard the term “hair porosity” and wondered what it means. Essentially, hair porosity is about your hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. The porosity of your hair affects how well oils and moisture pass in and out of the outermost layer of your hair, known as the cuticle. So one of the ways you can measure the porosity of your hair is to Take some strands of hair from your brush or comb (be sure to use clean hair as products can alter the results) and drop them into a glass of water. Let them sit for a few minutes, and if the strands float after the time is up, you likely have low-porosity hair. If it sinks, the hair is likely to be high porosity. So if your hair is high in porosity then you’ll need to be mindful of your shampoo especially because shampoo with a lot of sulfates can lead to dryness, itching, and tangling if you have high porosity hair especially 4c hair textures that are high in porosity. I recommend Sulphate free shampoo, which will help your high-porosity hair to retain its moisture and remain soft and hydrated.
Our recommendation is to cover your hair with a silk or Satin durag or sleep with a silk pillow. if you don’t like silk pillowcases and you prefer to tighten your hair with a silk durag or scarf that is super great. Using a silk pillowcase for hair will reduce friction as you sleep – thereby reducing frizz. Friction is often the reason why split ends occur, and neither is it great for anyone prone to frizzy hair.
